Not a fan of the trades they made or players they took. Don’t see the value of moving up a little bit in the third rounder and didn’t pick up any extra picks. Anthony Castonzo is a solid pick in the 1st but selecting a RT doesn’t fill a huge need. They overdrafted Andy Dalton in the late 2nd round although he’ll go higher in the actual draft. He’s not a great fit in Shanahan’s system as he’s not the gun-slinger type. Kris O’Dowd is more of a 4th or 5th rounder because of his injury history. Jerrell Powe is just not a very good player drafted in the 3rd. Terrance Toliver is a fine pick but he shouldn’t contribute in year one. Ugo Chinasa is a nice fit in this system, Dion Lewis is nice value in the 7th, Anthony Gaitor and Charles Clay are both decent picks but this is a draft that lacks any immediate impact.
